Casey Carlson on Campus Girls Bikini Shoots:
Casey Carlson received a golden ticket to Hollywood after her American Idol audition.
This Minneapolis native impressed judges on the show's eighth season. She's 20 years old, refers to herself as a "bubble tea maker" when asked her profession and sang “A Thousand Miles” by Vanessa Carlton during her audition in Kansas City.
Carlson made the semifinal round of 36 on the show. We're proud of her for the achievement.
Two American Idol contestants, two contrasting bikini babes.
Katrina Darrell made headlines during the season eight premiere by auditioning in a bathing suit, getting into a fight with Kara DioGuardi and trying to kiss Ryan Seacrest. We enjoyed her antics, don't get us wrong.
Meanwhile, Casey Carlson received a golden ticket to Hollywood last night off the basis of her vocal talents, as her rendition of Vanessa Carlton's "A Thousand Miles" received unanimous praise from the judges.
Turns out Carlson also has a bikini-baring past, but it isn't a self-promoting one: a couple years ago, Casey posed for a calendar sponsored by Campus Girls USA. The proceeds from its sales went toward breast cancer awareness.
Using your breasts to fight breast cancer? That's a cause we can get behind!
I am completely addicted to reality television, or all television for that matter. I have watched every episode of Lost, Heroes, Greek, America's Next Top Model, Sex and the City, Weeds, Project Runway, Gossip Girl... you name it.
